the development of new technology is bringing much more rapid change to the system that can't be disruptive. i think embracing these changes will allow a much more efficient utilization of energy resources. the challenge before us is to enable the system to be more efficient through the utilization of technology and foster the development of a diverse set of competitive energy resources while at the same time and sure we have the power and reasonable rates for consumers. as a result of the technology we are experiencing a supply of natural gas and resulting gas prices at the lowest since 2002. this is changing the economics of electric generation resulting the retirement of older and less efficient units and most recently some nuclear plants. the generation being built is primarily combined gas plants, wind and solar generation. this appears likely to continue. driven by a significant degree the economics on low-priced gas and the development of more productive when the turbines and panels. the other drivers are little to no growth, public policie polics the standards, compliance with the rule

is technology may help us. there are now systems that rely on gps and satellite information more so than intensive equipment on the tracks. that would help in those situations where the passengers trains travel over tracks that are privately owned by other companies. it will take congress ordered it and in many cases, there are financial incentives, tax incentives, et cetera, cost sharing with the government that might have to happen. but it will take congress ordering the trains to complete this, because the honor, the trust and obey system has resulted in amtrak and a few others. it needs to go on passenger trains first. the bullet train in japan has this and that's why they can achieve speeds of 200 miles an hour. >> mary schiavo, thank you very much. the information. >> thank you. >> if you are in a train accident what steps can you take to be as safe as possible? something as simple as choosing the best seat could make all the difference. cnn's chris lawrence is in washington with more on that. what have you learned, chris? >> we'll tell you what a national safety expert tells his o

the curve, which has a speed limit of 30 miles per hour. experts say that technology already exists that could potentially prevent accidents like this one. a system called positive train control or ptc uses sensors and gps to track the trains movements. a computer can acty vat the breaks if they are going too fast. amtrak is already using it on some lines but congress wants to mandate it on many lines by 2015, including metro north, the line involved in yesterday's deadly derailment. here's how survivors of the crash describe the chaos in the moments before and after the accident. >> as we were going over, i looked at my two and screamed at my two friends that were going over. i couldn't believe it. i was in shock. >> it was when it went around the curve, i actually looked up. i knew it was going way too fast. >> screaming and people crying out, god and asking for families. it was pretty gruesome. >> kristen dahlgren has the latest on the investigation. what's the update on the two people in control of the train who are being interviewed here? >> reporter: yeah, the conductor and en
